Umber (31.5 — Alice’s Story)

June 14, 2012 § 2 Comments

We talked a bit more, though I could hear impatient noises coming from Alice’s coffin.

“Uh, Vera, someone else wants to talk with you,” I began.

“Yes, but please wait just a minute.  Even though I only just found out your name, I already think of you as a friend, after our long conversation the other day.  I guess it was more of a monologue, really, but you are such a good listener.  I just need to ask you something.  Please don’t think I am crazy.  Have inanimate objects ever spoken to you?”

Since lately I had been having conversations with photographs on a regular basis, I could honestly answer,  “Yes, Vera,  as a matter of fact, it happens to me, too.”
